Community Outreach

At last Wednesday's meeting, we recognized our Student of the Month for "Community Outreach" for Archbishop Murphy High School (AMHS), Erika Ellison. 
Some of Erika's outreach to community include: volunteering for Swim Across American, a program dedicated to connecting swimmers to raise money for cancer research; spending every Saturday at Sunrise View Retirement Center playing Bingo and offering warm interactions to the residents; participating each October in “Trick or Trek,” a trick-or-treating experience for children who live on Casino Road in Everett; and  participating in “Operation Backpack Deploy,” which is an annual basic supplies drive. In addition, Erika and her family have traveled to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for each of the last four years to serve those in need. through building showers and collecting and distributed shoes. 
Erika plans to attend Saint Francis University in Pennsylvania. Erika has been recruited by the Saint Francis University Lacrosse Team and plans to study biology with the intent to serve people and animals.  Congratulations Erika!
